Maybe you don’t live in an area that experiences hurricanes, earthquakes and volcanoes and so you’re probably not too concerned with climate change. But you should be.

You see all these natural disasters continue to affect your health. You may not have thought about it much but every time there is a heat wave or a flood, global health is being impacted.

The relationship between climate change and health
The latest report was published in The Lancet and was compiled by the University College London’s Institute for Global Health. Climate specialists, social, environmental and energy scientists along with geographers and other health experts all came together to examine the relationship between climate change and health.

The researchers noted that changes in climate directly and indirectly affect global health so combating climate change could have many benefits.

Extreme weather conditions, in particular, have a direct affect on health. In situations like floods or heat waves the spread of bacteria is much higher. Likewise the ability to obtain food and clean water is greatly compromised. These factors can directly impact the health of those in the affected areas.
